I missed posting yesterday, so here are a couple of things for the Happiness Challenge today.

- UT started fall football practice yesterday. The bigger news is that it means football season is finally almost here. Man, I'm so ready. Undefeated, national champions will be wearing Big Orange...you read it first here. (Of course, what you must recall is I make this prediction every year as well as forecasting a Redskins vs Titans Super Bowl....so what I'm saying here is don't take this one to Vegas...)
- I'm visiting the old stomping ground of Knoxville this weekend and driving into town, I got to hear SportsTalk. Now, I know some of y'all in Knoxville may go--yeah, but it's just SportsTalk. Yeah, but after living in other areas that don't have a specific college team bound to the area, it was nice to hear the discussion all center on UT. Don't get me wrong--Nashville has some good sports call in shows, but they have to at least pretend like Vanderbilt stands a chance this year during the early days of August...and it's so sad to hear. Esp. after last year when they achieved so much (for Vandy) and how hard the crash back to Earth will be this year (man, I'm snarky today...)
